Confronting Drought in Africa's Drylands: Opportunities for Enhancing Resilience (Africa Development Forum)

Confronting Drought in Africa's Drylands: Opportunities for Enhancing Resilience (Africa Development Forum) by Raffaello Cervigni
English | May 9, 2016 | ISBN: 1464808171 | 299 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Drylands represent the front line in the battle for poverty eradication and resource conservation in Africa. While we know that millions of people in drylands are exposed to the threat of land degradation and periodically fall victim to droughts and other shocks, actions to address these challenges have been fragmented, too many times prompted only by humanitarian crises, and in the end largely inadequate. This book provides a solid, evidence-based assessment of the potential for the many interventions that can improve crop and livestock production and allow better stewardship of natural resources, thereby significantly lowering the numbers of people exposed to risk.

Africa's Demographic Transition: Dividend or Disaster? (Africa Development Forum)

Africa's Demographic Transition: Dividend or Disaster? (Africa Development Forum) by David Canning

Africa is poised on the edge of a potential takeoff to sustained economic growth. This takeoff can be abetted by a demographic dividend from the changes in population age structure. Declines in child mortality, followed by declines in fertility, produce a 'bulge' generation and a large number of working age people, giving a boost to the economy. In the short run lower fertility leads to lower youth dependency rates and greater female labor force participation outside the home. Smaller family sizes also mean more resources to invest in the health and education per child boosting worker productivity. In the long run increased life spans from health improvements mean that this large, high-earning cohort will also want to save for retirement, creating higher savings and investments, leading to further productivity gains.
